Celebrity doctor warns we should wear toxic sunscreen while talking on our cellphone or using our computer

(Natural News) The fear of getting skin cancer drives many people to wear sunscreen every time they leave the house, even if their plans don’t include spending time outdoors. The sunscreen industry has embraced this line of thinking, which is one big reason that Vitamin D deficiencies are soaring in this country. Melanoma is certainly...

AbstractBackgroundTraditional response criteria may be insufficient to characterize full clinical benefits of anticancer immunotherapies. Consequently, endpoints such as durable response rate (DRR; a continuous response [complete or partial objective response] beginning within 12  months of treatment and lasting ≥6 months) have been employed. There has not, however, been validation that DRR correlates with other more traditional endpoints of clinical benefit such as overall survival.MethodsWe evaluated whether DRR was associated with clinically meaningful measures of benefit (eg, overall survival [OS], quality...

ConclusionsIn this large series of patients spanning more than two decades, OR/CR rates with HD IL-2 were 18.1%/8.0% respectively. Toxicity data was consistent with prior reports. Pre-treatment LDH values and site(s) of metastatic disease may be useful markers to select patients at greater likelihood of benefit to HD IL-2 therapy.

AbstractAmong the players of the adaptive response of cancer cells able to promote a resistant and aggressive phenotype, carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX) recently has emerged as one of the most relevant drug targets. Indeed, CAIX targeting has received a lot of interest, and selective inhibitors are currently under clinical trials. Hypoxia has been identified as the master inductor of CAIX, but, to date, very few is known about the influence that another important characteristic of tumor microenvironment, i.e., extracellular acidosis, exerts on CAIX expression and activity. In the last decades, acidic microenvironment has been...

CONCLUSIONS: A diagnosis of hyponatremia may be a marker of occult neoplasms, especially cancers of the lung, brain, liver, pancreas, esophagus, kidney, pharynx and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Hyponatremia may aid in early detection of cancer. PMID: 28920509 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Rangel-Reyes JC, Chimal-Eguía JC, Castillo-Montiel E Abstract Therapeutic protocols in immunotherapy are usually proposed following the intuition and experience of the therapist. In order to deduce such protocols mathematical modeling, optimal control and simulations are used instead of the therapist's experience. Clinical efficacy of dendritic cell (DC) vaccines to cancer treatment is still unclear, since dendritic cells face several obstacles in the host environment, such as immunosuppression and poor transference to the lymph nodes reducing the vaccine effect. In view of that, we have created a m...

Authors: Braun RP, Ludwig S, Marghoob AA Abstract Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is a benign epidermal keratinocytic tumor that is extremely common, particularly in individuals over the age of 50. Most individuals with SK will have more than one lesion and the presence of over 10 lesions in the same person is not uncommon. Although the clinical morphology of most SK with their stuck-on, symmetric, keratotic, and waxy appearance makes them easy to identify, many manifest a morphology resembling melanoma or squamous cell carcinoma. One can argue that such cases will ultimately not prove to be problematic since a simple bi...

Conclusion: This is the first report on an integrin/wnt signalling activation axis addressing the consequences for chemotherapy sensitiveness of melanoma cells, which thus offers novel therapeutic targets for approaches to interfere with chemoresistance.

To the Editor: The strongest predictor of melanoma survival is Breslow tumor thickness,1 which dictates the margins for wide local excision and whether sentinel lymph node biopsy is performed.2 If the skin biopsy of a melanoma is deeply transected, then the true Breslow depth is not known. The 2012 National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines for melanoma recommends that sentinel lymph node biopsy be considered in stage 1A melanomas ( ≤1 mm thick, no ulceration, mitotic rate
